Pssst! Guess where I went this afternoon OR should I say, yesterday? :) My cousins-in-law (thanks, ladies!) picked me up to check out the HSBC sale at Nuvo City in Libis, QC.
Good news to those who don't have an HSBC credit card/ATM, you just have to find someone who has to get you in. But that friend has to be a really really good friend of yours, since you can only pay using their card. Just pay your friend after, or issue a cheque ;)
Obviously, this HSBC Bazaar Sale is a Store Specialists, Inc. (SSI) thing, so everything you see here are from that company. First thing you'll see after registration (oh, and they have raffle prizes, too!) are these selected products from Burt's Bees (Beauty Bar), Lush and Fruits & Passion.
Ferragamo accessories are sold at about P1000 a piece.
This Ferragamo jelly thongs are sold at about P6000, I think.
I loved this Fendi bag from the first day I saw it—but it will stay as one of my dream bags. Gotta control! This is the last piece, a display item most probably. It's such a chic summer bag to have. Original price: P85k; Sale price: P30k.
I like this Fendi B bag as well—the bright punchy yellow shade makes this fun and sophisticated. Sale price: about P50k.
Cute Juicy Couture items like this clutch are sold at about P3-5k.
Prada bags and shoes were also on sale. See the little gold and cream bag? :)
YSL and Sergio Rossi. The YSL black patent bag is on sale at P61k, while the distressed silver muse bag is priced at around P58k.
Tod's was also present. I see pretty ballet flats!
Hogan, too! I kept going back to this pretty silver and khaki wedge—pretty! Now, sold at about P6k.
Food is available outside, with choices from Yellow Cab, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf to name a few. I tried their Chicken Shawarma-ish wrap (left in photo) from True Cafe Oriental, and it's really good. Costs about P85.
There were a lot more areas I wasn't able to take photos of. Other brands that participated include BCBG, Ralph Lauren, Kenneth Cole, DKNY, Philip Charriol, Nine West, Marc Jacobs, Gap, Banana Republic, Zara, Marks and Spencer, Debenhams, Bass, Lacoste, Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Furla, Michael Kors, Longchamp—whew, I can't remember all of them!
Oh, and here's what I bought... the ONLY thing I bought—I've been a good girl *insert angel icon*
A Japanese-printed one-shoulder silk blouson from Zara, originally priced at P2450. I got it for only P1350, I love it ;)
Endless racks of clothes occupied almost half of the place. There are dressing rooms for you to try them on, too! But expect chaos, and be patient as you browse through piles and rows of clothes. After all, they are all marked down items. Sale ends June 7, and is open from 10am—9pm. Parking is available behind Nuvo City, but having a driver would make your life much easier. Enjoy!
